Colorful Carlsmith

Recommended Posts

Have posted this big boy in past, but this time it is showing more red wine color than the previous oranges. Trunk about 5ft. Understory are Dypsis leucomala, and Dypsis decipiens, both painfully slow., about 8-10 yrs old each. Last pic with row of Dypsis Utilis for privacy.

Colin, I’m surprised the Decipiens and Leucomalla are that slow for you in HI. I wonder if the Carlsmithii is hogging all the water?

Matt thanks ,

Carlsmith probably is since it has grown so much and so fast.  The Leucomalla is about one 

leaf a year or more. Giving them all lots of nutricote and they get quite a bit of water. and are in

really black,  rich, island clay. Guess, just gotta be happy the Carlsmith is looking good.

The Dypsis utilis in the middle picture are crazy fast.  They are six feet tall with multiple trunks each, and

are only about 3 yrs from one gallons. lots or water runoff from roof and lots of nutricote and heavy mulch.
